Unopened Pack Grading


Unopened Pack Grading

Preserve the quality of your unopened packs while maximizing their security, value and liquidity with PSA authentication and grading.

From vintage classics to modern marvels, PSA can help you protect your prized packs with our revolutionary holder – the finest available in the marketplace.

Utilizing a 1-10 grading scale with 10 being best, each pack is encapsulated in a sonically sealed, tamper-evident case. The case provides safe storage and exceptional visual presentation.


The Grading Process

PSA authenticates both wax and cello packs but does not authenticate Tallboy or Rack Packs.

A series of PSA graders review your packs for authenticity and seal. If genuine and unopened, PSA looks for evidence of resealing, repairing and alterations.

If your packs pass these two steps, PSA experts grade the condition of each pack on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being best. Wear to corners and edges of the wrapper, or staining and toning of the wrapper, will contribute to the grade.

After grading, PSA encapsulates each pack in its own extra thick, tamper-evident case. A label within the case displays the pack's pertinent information and unique certification number.
